News, thoughts, and ramblings from the minds behind Memphis Made Brewing Co.
With winter and cold weather firmly here, we've decided to help make everyone's day a little brighter with the release of two favorites, the Judge and Plaid ATTACK!!!, this week.
Look for these two darker ales on tap and in cans around Shelby County and North Mississippi, wherever good beer is sold, well into January.
This is our first time canning these beers.
In case you need a reminder, the Judge is our chocolate-vanilla porter made with Madagascar vanilla. This very judicious offering balances roasty malt notes with hints of vanilla and cocoa. It has a solid body and holds a great head at 6 percent ABV.
Plaid ATTACK!!! is another beer that will help fight winter's chill. This Scottish ale clocks in at 6.2 percent ABV. Its solid malt backbone comes from Marris Otter, crystal, chocolate and a dash of smoked cherry wood malts. It's balanced with a variety of UK classic hops to create a smooth drinking experience.
In a strange turn of events, a Huggy Bear has come out of hiberation just before winter to help get you through the oncoming cold weather.
This honey brown ale tastes like the warm embrace of a grizzly bear without all the sharp claws and the biting.
Honey malt and darker roasted malts give it a sweet, malty backbone and a nice chocolate finish.
This is a brown that comes in at 5 percent ABV so you can enjoy quite a few before knocking over trash cans and mauling hikers.
Look for it on draft and in six packs at our taproom and where good beer is sold in Shelby County.
We’re helping celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Ronald McDonald House Radiothon on 98.1 the Max with a new beer.
We’ve just released Alt-Radio, an Altbier brewed with spices, and it will be available throughout the month of October just for this event.
We are partnering with AJAX Distributing to support the Ronald McDonald House directly, donating part of every case sold to the charity, which offers children with pediatric cancer and other catastrophic illnesses undergoing treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their families a nurturing, family-centered residential community.
This promotion will also bring awareness to the Radiothon, which will air Oct. 30 on 98.1 the Max.
Stop by our newly-reopened taproom or your friendly neighborhood beer retailer to try this tasty brew while supporting a good cause.
Phew! It seems like it's been ages since people have come to the tap room for a pint! We're so excited to be able to allow people back! We've even created a new shaded outside seating area for a more spacious and safe time!
For now the tap room will be open for on site consumption, togo beer, six pack pick up and growler fills:
Still have a few ground rules we have to stick to in order to promote safety:
Other ways we are working to keep you safe include all the staff wearing a mask at all times. Also, we’ll be serving beer in compostable cups and we will have recycle bins set up so you can just toss it in there when your beer is done. We will also be cleaning/sanitizing all tables after each group and the bar top regularly.
Thank you so much for your support over the last few months, and we can't wait to see you!
So who’s ready to have some FUN?
We’re releasing FUN hard seltzer this week in 12-ounce cans throughout Shelby County.
FUN Lime will be the first flavor available.

Our taproom is currently open to the public Friday 4-10 p.m. and Saturday 1-10 p.m. It’s also open for to-go beers 4-7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
This is a light, refreshing beverage that is perfect for our hot Memphis summers.
